This Mortal Coil
It'll End In Tears

Oh lord this is the album. Back in the 80's no-one had any time for the likes of Big Star or Tim Buckley. 4AD head honcho was different though. He had exquisite taste and was also ambitious enough to put together a floating member super group to re-interpret some of his favourite songs. It Will End In Tears will always be most known for the now classic Cocteau Twins assisted reading of Buckley's 'Song To The Siren', but their version of Roy Harper's 'Another Day' runs it close as do two (count em) Big Star songs. 

This Mortal Coil
Blood

Blood was the third and final This Mortal Coil album and like it's predecessor Filagree and Shadow, was presented as a double album. Once again large swathes of the 4AD roster were involved and the album has several highlights that compare favourably with their earlier work. There are two Chris Bell (Big Star) songs including an exquisite 'You and Your Sister' performed by Kim Deal and Tanya Donnelly and the likes of Gene Clark, Syd Barrett and Mary Margaret O'Hara get their back catalogues raided.   

This Mortal Coil
Filigree and Shadow

Filagree and Shadow was the follow up to the much loved debut It Will End In Tears from shadowy 4AD collective This Mortal Coil. Again leader Ivo Watts-Russell chose a supergroup made out of (mostly) artists on his label but this time there were more self penned compositions, enough to make it into a double album. Like it's more lauded debut exquisite taste was shown in the choice of covers with Tim Buckley, Gene Clark and Wire all getting their songbooks raided.
